Lighting in the Thunder

 

Natives of Hawaii say, “The Earth is the Chief and people are here to serve the Chief.” That pretty much sums up the philosophy of most indigenous people. But modern man fails to recognize the relationships between all created life.

While building his skyscrapers and automobiles, his great ocean-going ships that transport oil stolen from the depths of seas (once pristine), ‘civilized’ man has become blind to the American dream … the dream that promised a chicken in every pot, the vision that promised one nation under God devoted to justice and liberty for all. The American dream was designed for ALL! And the God of All continues to envision America as the role model for peace.

The Statue of Liberty that stands at Liberty Island in Upper New York Bay speaks of the promise we made to the world in 1886. Representing the Goddess of Freedom, she bears a torch to light the way and carries a tablet containing the law. At her feet lies a broken chain. A plaque mounted inside the pedestal of the statue features the poetry of Emma Lazarus.


Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed , sunset gates shall stand,
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows worldwide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teaming shore.
Send those the homeless, the tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

 

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Question: is there any mention of borders, illegal immigrants, deporting desperate men and women who will suffer any humiliation attempting to do one thing … work for wages?

“Send those the homeless, the tempest-tossed to me.” The message says nothing about keeping our Human brothers and sisters outside borders and walls. This message says open the floodgates and get into the middle of an ocean of beings that are skilled, willing and most of all … Human!

Poet Emma Lazarus, sees America at Her compassionate best. The poet cannot imagine anything less. “Not like Colossus, the brazen giant of Greek fame; with conquering limbs astride from land to land.”

Not like Colossus? But sadly this is how much of the world views America. The opening line to Emma’s poetry is a statement America made to the world … no, a promise we made to the world. “America will not be a brazen giant with conquering limbs astride from land to land.”

Since World War One, America has not known how to keep our promise. Yes, it is understood; the world is very complicated compared to 1886. In that era there was an innocence that does not exist today. There were no nuclear plants endangering sentient life, no global economy, no television, computers or smart phones. Yes, there is plenty to be concerned about … and also, there is much wonder to be anticipated.

For the Goddess of Freedom says, “I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” And Christ says, “I Am the door that no man can shut!” And God said, “Let there be Light!” And there is Light in the hearts of billions of souls. And there is Lightning in the thunder!

Yes, the thunder of war machines steal peace and safety from our people. And the four leggeds, the creepy crawlies, the swimmers and the winged ones suffer from unnatural, pounding sounds. And plant life and the little ones who make their living in the roots of trees are damaged by unnatural radiation spilled into their nests ... just as man’s family is harmed by forces that do not serve this planet or all creation.

But, there is the Golden Door! And the Goddess is shining her lamp to light the Way. The Mother of Exiles is giving birth to a New Nation.

The Hopi: the Ancient Ones, known as the People of Peace, speak of the New Nation as The Fifth World. For many years, the Hopi have warned the world that it must cease accusing, invading and troubling neighbors of differing cultures. “Such activities can no longer be tolerated. The Creator says no more.”

There is no need to tear down existing structures. Leave them be. There is no reason to act against governments or attempt to change the world as it stands today. For today shall pass and the only correction we need is in personal behavior. Let the words that leave our mouths become love songs, let every gesture be tender and let smiling replace judgment. Let us build bridges to The Fifth World … together.

Christ so beautifully speaks: “I see no fault in any one or anything. What is referred to as evil is lack of maturity. I am not here to rule your world for the world as it stands today is created by experimentation. A child does not know the stove is hot until he touches it. Once touched the child suffers the pain his actions brought to him. Hopefully, he need not repeat the lesson. Life cycles are composed by education through experience. No ministers sermon is as effective as personal experience.”

“Man has created a structure that does not serve his greater good. But man is not the structure. The Human is a developing Beloved Child of God; in the material realities for education. Some day we will know how to create and maintain a perfect, loving society and a world that is lighted by Love’s Torch.”

Christ sees no fault in anyone or anything! “And I am not of a mind to lose even one lamb. I Am the Way, the Truth and the Light. So are you. Live it! Be it! And live by it!”

Author’s note: I find it interesting that the words of poet Emma Lazarus are meant to carry us from grave times into the resurrection of compassion; even as Christ lifted Lazarus from the grave and restored him to life.
